CELPHEDIA At a glance
CELPHEDIA (Creation, Breeding, Phenotyping, Distribution and Archiving of model organisms) mainly aims to develop innovative, standardized and massively parallel technological approaches, in order to accelerate the understanding of the genome and the generation of human or animal disease models. CELPHEDIA is a national and operational research infrastructure distributed over the French territory. Its goal is to improve and harmonize procedures and protocols, which guarantee efficiency and reliability, thus facilitating national or international access to the models of interest.
